The Comeback Tour represents an ethos of shaking the dust off after falling down and celebrates the collective resilience of the community, giving fans an opportunity to stage their comeback.

“Zac Brown Band is known worldwide for their consummate musicianship, litany of timeless hits, and incomparable live shows. From the moment they stepped onto the scene, they were grinding out this game-changing vision. When we heard the new music, our only question was, ‘How quickly can we get this to the fans?’ It was absolutely, positively undeniable. Enough said. It feels good to have them back in the Warner family, and we’re excited to make some new history together,” WMN EVP A&R Cris Lacy added.
